About Us

Our mission: the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition promotes healthy and safe riding for everyone through advocacy and education.

Our vision: riding a bicycle becomes an everyday activity for transportation, recreation and exercise throughout Sonoma County for everyone. Bicycling is considered a standard form of transportation by local governments and safe transportation options for bicycle riders are always included in decision-making. As a result, the people of Sonoma County enjoy healthier lifestyles, a cleaner environment and safe cycling choices.
